The Global Excellence Model (GEM) Council consists of organisations that are recognised globally as the guardians of premier Excellence Models and Award processes in their specific geographical region/area or trading block. These not-for-profit organisations provide mutual learning and sharing of good practices and initiatives, and maintain direct access to the private and public sectors. They place their Excellence mission above short-term commercial exploitation.
GEM Council members support and promote the interests and activities of GEM, participate in cross-national working groups and acknowledge the mutual benefits of sharing and learning activities. The ambition of the GEM Council is to ultimately secure membership from each significant geographical region/trading block across the globe
